Love is in the Air: 3 Healthy Valentines Day Desserts

Healthy Valentines Day DessertsMost people don’t realize that it’s possible to choose and enjoy healthy Valentines Day desserts. This is because the options that get the largest amount of time in the spotlight usually consist of foods that are notorious for being high in sugar, fat and even sodium.

However, there are many healthy Valentines Day desserts that are as delicious as they are good for you. These are great for everything from the most romantic day of the year to a special anniversary or even date night.

If you choose healthy Valentines Day desserts for these special days, you’ll be able to enjoy a sweet course at the end of your meal without taking in a slew of empty calories at the same time. What better way to show that special someone what they mean to you than by giving them a delicious dessert that is good for them at the same time.

This doesn’t mean that you need to eat tofu and carrot sticks. It truly is possible to serve something sumptuous, luxurious and delicious and that is packed with nutrients at the same time.

The following are 3 of the top nutrient dense desserts that are perfect for a romantic evening like Valentine’s Day:

1. Rich and creamy chocolate “ice cream” or mousse. The recipe for these two desserts is actually the same. The only difference is whether you use frozen bananas or refrigerated ones. In fact, the ingredients in both these options are simply bananas and pure cocoa. For added creaminess (and to make it easier to blend them), add a touch of plain Greek yogurt. This may sound very simple but once you try it, you’ll find yourself making it on a regular basis.

2. Strawberry shortcake. Sure, you could make this the traditional way and load up on fat and sugar. Or, you can make a healthy alternative that tastes incredible. Simply use whole grain pancakes, fresh strawberries and a touch of real whipped cream with a little bit of pure maple syrup whipped right into it. Choose a pancake recipe or mix that will give you very fluffy pancakes instead of dense, flat ones. The result is shockingly good.

3. Apple crumble – make your own apple crumble with fresh apples, a drizzle of pure maple syrup instead of sugar and a topping made out of a mix of several grains. The result is sweet and delicious with all the right textures but without all the unwanted refined flour and sugar.
